I think you could have a fourth category on posting comments on blogs.
Your writing tips apply here with a couple additions.
Don’t just parachute in with a generic phrase like “Totally agree.” The comment should add to the dialog with a fresh perspective (related to the post).
On the other end of the spectrum, don’t be a bombastic and/or long winded. This is not the right forum to pen a soliloquy.

Don’t forget to spellcheck! The title of slide 3 has a misspelling. Sloppy work often gets in the way of the message and discredits it no matter how important or interesting.

Kudos on a good catch, Kathy. I clearly missed that title in my review of the slides. Now I need to investigate swapping versions of the deck on SlideShare, which raises another conundrum. The deck has been popular – more than 1,800 views so far. If I can’t swap it out with an updated version, I’ll probably just leave it, as-is, with my glaring typo intact. I’d hate to delete a deck that many have shared, linked to, embedded or marked as a favorite (despite my mistake.) The point is this – typos take on a half-life in social media!
